I have just arrived home from hospital,
6 days ago I had my operation.
now I have a metal stump in my lower leg bone, and a metal ball in my top leg bone.
the x ray looks weird.

and at the moment the pain is exceptional, but hopefully life will be far easier when I heal.

I have already had a few minor setbacks ........
little things like lupus inflammation.
my lupus inflammation has made it impossible to continue my normal stretching exercises.
I am unable to bend my knee anywhere as much as I was before the inflammation started.

but I will not let it stop me.
